Simpson Farm's Southern Tater

Olde English Bulldogge

  • Sent to me by Tater's pet health insurance company. Well, for an English Bulldog type, I guess they think he is most athletic... 🤷‍♀️ At about 14 months old.

“Tater is a 16 inch tall, 56 lbs, neutered male, F2 Olde English Bulldogge. He is a registered OEB, however, his sire is an F1 registered OEB which means the sire's parents consisted of an AKC registered English Bulldog father, and a registered Olde English Bulldogge mother. Tater's mother is a registered F3 Olde English Bulldogge, so she has a purebred AKC English Bulldog grandfather introduced into her bloodline of registered OEBs. This is same breeding guideline as the, "Continental Bulldog".”

Maternal Haplotype

Paternal Haplotype

Through Simpson Farm's Southern Tater’s mitochondrial DNA we can trace his mother’s ancestry back to where dogs and people first became friends. This map helps you visualize the routes that his ancestors took to your home. Their story is described below the map.

Haplogroup

B1

Haplotype

Map

B1

Simpson Farm's Southern Tater’s Haplogroup

B1 is the second most common maternal lineage in breeds of European or American origin. It is the female line of the majority of Golden Retrievers, Basset Hounds, and Shih Tzus, and about half of Beagles, Pekingese and Toy Poodles. This lineage is also somewhat common among village dogs that carry distinct ancestry from these breeds. We know this is a result of B1 dogs being common amongst the European dogs that their conquering owners brought around the world, because nowhere on earth is it a very common lineage in village dogs. It even enables us to trace the path of (human) colonization: Because most Bichons are B1 and Bichons are popular in Spanish culture, B1 is now fairly common among village dogs in Latin America.

B28

Simpson Farm's Southern Tater’s Haplotype

Part of the large B1 haplogroup, we have spotted this haplotype frequently in Cocker Spaniels, Pomeranians, Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, and village dogs in Liberia and Namibia.

The B1 haplogroup can be found in village dogs like the Peruvian Village Dog, pictured above.

Haplogroup

D

Haplotype

H7

Map

D

Simpson Farm's Southern Tater’s Haplogroup

The D paternal lineage is very common in well-known populations of dogs. Breeds belonging to the D lineage likely have direct male ancestors that can be traced all the way back to the origin of domestic dogs themselves! One popular breed that commonly sports a D lineage is the Boxer. Boxers were developed in the late 19th century from Mastiff dogs, so it is no surprise that D is well represented among Mastiffs, Bulldogs, as well as Terriers. Intriguingly, D is also found among Lhasa Apsos, an ancient Tibetan breed, and Afghan Hounds. While the presence of this lineage in Polynesia or the New World can be chalked up to interbreeding with European dogs brought during voyages of discovery or later settlement, D is also well represented among village dog populations in the Middle East and Africa. If the fact that we find dogs bearing a D lineage in the Middle East (not to mention the large amount of diversity among Middle Eastern D lineage males) is any indication of ancient residence in that region, then the presence among Oceanian village dogs is peculiar. Rather, it may be that D is part of a broader Eurasian group of ancient paternal lineages which disappeared from the eastern portion of its original range, persisting in the island of New Guinea as well as West Asia and Africa. With the rise of Mastiff breeds, the D lineage received a new life as it became common among many types of working dogs.

H7

Simpson Farm's Southern Tater’s Haplotype

Part of the D haplogroup, this common haplotype has been found in French Bulldogs, Afghan Hounds, Bull Terriers, and village dogs spanning from South America to Africa and into the South Pacific.

The D paternal lineage is common in Boxers.
